Calories burned using heart rate
Heart rate based calorie burn (caloric expenditure) calculators provides an estimate of the rate at which people burn calories during cardio exercises, based on their average heart rate while performing the activity.
It may seem like manufacturers are always hiding the real formula behind calories burned from heart rate.
Here is the formula to calculate calories burned from heart rate.
Men: C/min = (-59.3954 + (-36.3781 + 0.271 x age + 0.394 x weight + 0.404 x VO2max + 0.634 x HR))/4.184
Women: C/min = (-59.3954 + (0.274 x age + 0.103 x weight + 0.380 x VO2max + 0.450 x HR)) / 4.184
Men: C/min = (-55.0969 + 0.6309 x HR + 0.1988 x weight + 0.2017 x age) / 4.184
Women: C/min = (-20.4022 + 0.4472 x HR – 0.1263 x weight + 0.074 x age) / 4.184
(Weigh is in kilograms, C stands for Kcals)
I got it now, that’s why it’s easier to use calculators! 🙂
